A disappointing showing for this wine. Ruby in color, flat. The nose has some cedar and a bit of red currants. On the palate, there is some fruit but it is disjointed and seems cloying. At the same time the acidity is out of balance and harsh. Very tart on the finish. The flat appearance for such a young wine makes me wonder if this was indeed a proper bottle or it was mishandled somewhere along the distribution chain. It retails for around $20 and should be better.
